Woman loses phone to snatchers in Nungambakkam
A 25-year-old woman lost her expensive smartphone to a snatcher in the wee hours of Tuesday. The victim, Aditi Doss, is an employee of a hotel near Anna flyover. She stepped out of the hotel to return to her hostel in Nungambakkam around 12.15 am.
While she was waiting after booking a cab on Nungambakkam High Road, an unidentified man snatched her mobile phone and ran away. When Aditi tried to chase him, the man got onto a waiting bike, and the duo managed to escape.
